There were no comments from the floor.
ChristiAnne Storman noted a concern regarding safety if she and her husband go “frogging”. It was determined that the large sign noting the 3D range is in use and the gate to the 400 yard tower should suffice in warning potential shooters that someone is downrange.
Dave Shaffer noted that the stage used by SASS was at a point where it was no longer safe to use. It was determined that the stage needed to be torn down and a new one built. Dave has built a new stage at a cost of $1,000.00. Fred Guyette made a motion to reimburse Dave the $1,000.00. Motion 2nd by Tom Oleniacz. All approved (except Jack)
